|11:15 am - 12:45 pm|
11:15am – 12:00pm / Alternative Capital: The ultimate disruptor?
Now standing at around 12 percent of overall reinsurance capacity – and rising – capital markets capacity is having a profound effect on the market. Affecting pricing, (re)insurance structures and the business model itself, is this capital the ultimate disruptor?
12:00pm – 12:45pm / State Interventions into Catastrophe Risk
State cat pools are extremely important as a first/last payer in the event of a major natural catastrophe. Their existence enables more consumers to retain insurance, thereby closing the “Protection Gap” between the full economic loss of a catastrophic event versus the amount that is insured. How have these pools evolved? What have been the obstacles? What should be their role going forward?
11:15am – 12:00pm / Flood: How to Make Your Company a Better Risk
Flood is a huge contributor to loss ratios in the property market – and flood claims continue to rise… This session will look at the science behind flood risk, identify where the losses are most prevalent and ask how companies with exposures in flood areas can best position themselves as a good risk to the insurance market. As technology and risk analytics become more sophisticated, insurance buyers are better equipped to quantify and assess their risks. The panel will assess how these developments are shaping the buying dynamic and ask if this is an opportunity for the excess and surplus lines (E&S) market to offer solutions?
12:00pm – 12:45pm / Multinational Issues
An expanding international footprint is a competitive necessity for many companies. But assuring that adequate and compliant insurance coverage is in place throughout the world, and that risk engineering services and claims expertise is available locally, can be a challenge. This session will explore the issues of property risk management and insurance for multinational companies and will provide insight into best practices.
|12:45 pm - 1:45 pm|
|1:45 pm - 2:15 pm|
Terrorism: The Global Threat Environment
Global commerce is increasingly a target of international terrorist groups, using a diverse range of methods to cause disruption to trade.

|2:15 pm - 3:00 pm|
Terrorism Cover in 2016: The Insurance Response
How are terrorism risks covered by the insurance industry? This session will address what first party coverage is available and how it is changing in response to the evolving threat environment. Panelists will also address TRIA, which renewed in 2015. What are the implications of this for buyers of property insurance? This session will highlight where cover falls for cyber extortion, intellectual property and tangible asset impairment.
|3:00 pm - 3:15 pm|
|3:15 pm - 4:15 pm|
Cyber and Physical Damage
Should the property market cover physical damage arising from cyber events? This session will explore some of the grey areas in current property and stand-alone cyber policies and ask if/how BI and CBI losses are addressed. How can gaps be avoided for cyber-related physical damage losses? Panelists will also discuss the burgeoning Internet of Things. What are the benefits for buyers and carriers of more connected and intelligent buildings?
|4:15 pm - 5:00 pm|
The View From the Top
